Journal of Philosophy

Evaluation Policy

  • The initial point of contact will be the Editor-in-Chief.
  • Occasionally submissions are accepted, perhaps after amendment or resubmission, by the Editor himself, but the vast majority of submissions are sent out to referees.
  • When papers are sent on, the referees receive ‘blinded’ versions of the papers.
  • Referees’ reports are sent on to the authors if the referees agree, though in the interest of speed referees may give brisk verdicts for the Editor-in-Chief’s eyes only.
  • In some cases suggestions for revision may be passed on to the authors.
  • Final decision about acceptance will be made by the Editor-in-Chief.
  • Referees are principally drawn from the Advisory Board of PJP.
  • We aim to give authors a decision within twelve weeks.
  • If you don't hear from us within that period, don’t let months go by – complain! (Emails do very occasionally go astray.)
  • Once accepted, papers usually appear within a calendar year.
  • Occasionally papers are invited by the Editor-in-Chief.
  • Contributors will receive a set of proofs, which will require immediate correction. Changes of style and content will not normally be allowed at that stage.
  • Authors will receive one hard copy of the journal and a PDF of the printed work by email.
